Hope for leptomeningeal disease (LMD)

submitted by: mdanderson
Leptomeningeal disease (LMD), which is also referred to as leptomeningeal carcinomatosis (LC), is a rare complication of cancer where the disease spreads to the membranes (meninges) surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Having a diagnosis of LMD may feel grim, but Cynthia Weisinger, a LMD and stage four breast cancer patient at MD Anderson Cancer Center, represents hope. Cynthia was diagnosed with LMD by Ivo Tremont, M.D., assistant professor of Neuro-Oncology, in October 2013 and is now...
